Simple question: regular expressions

10 posts in this topic

Hallo,

I am a newbie to AutoIt and slowly making some progress, but I got stuck at this point and need some help.

One of my windows is called

"LAN 01-11 22/12/2010 (static)"

I want to maximize it, so I wrote this piece of code (with some effort)

$title="LAN 01-11 22/12/2010 (static)"

WinSetState($title, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

And it works!!

However I need something more generic, not depending on dates, something like;

$title="LAN ??-11 ??/??/2010 (static)"

WinSetState($title, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

But I have no idea how to achieve this!!

I tried:

$title="LAN ([0-9]{2})-11 ([0-9]{2}&"/"&([0-9]{2}&"/2010 (static)"

and similar things but the regular expressions are a mistery to me.

Anyone can help?

Hope I stated the issue clearly.

Thanks

JUan

What about this?

$title = "LAN 01-11 22/12/2010 (static)"
$aString = StringRegExp($title, "(?i:LAN (\d.)-(\d.) (\d.)/(\d.)/20(\d.) \(static\))", 2)
ConsoleWrite($aString[0] & @CRLF)
WinSetState($aString[0], "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

$title="(static)"

WinSetState($title, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Overly simple and should work just fine :x

Wow!! Thanks so much for all the replies!! I will test them all... However I must say that there are more than one window that shares the (static) end. Also I do not know the date when this script will be executed and which date will be reflected in the title...

For instance:

Today is 22/12/2010. I have three windows called:

"LAN 01-11 22/12/2010 (static)"

"UPC 02-11 21/12/2010 (static)"

"ACD 02-11 22/12/2010 (static)"

The first 3 letters are fixed in time and the last 8 "(static)" also fixed across all windows, but the digits vary from day to day in a somehow "random" manner.

And I need to activate all of them.

How would you proceed?

What I need is.

1) activate LAN xx-xx xx/xx/xxxx (static), then do something

1) activate UPC xx-xx xx/xx/xxxx (static), then do something

1) activate ACD xx-xx xx/xx/xxxx (static), then do something

Some more info, If I use $title="LAN", then a window that is not visible but it is called "LAN" gets the focus, so I cannot use only the beginning...

Thanks again

Juan

Next try:

$title = "LAN 01-11 22/12/2010 (static)" & @LF & _
"LAN 01-11 22/12/2010 (static)" & @LF & _
"UPC 02-11 21/12/2010 (static)" & @LF & _
"ACD 02-11 22/12/2010 (static)" & @LF & _
"BCD 02-11 22/12/2010 (static)" & @LF & _
"APC 02-11 21/12/2010 (static)" & @LF
$aString = StringRegExp($title, "(?i:(LAN|UPC|ACD) (\d.)-(\d.) (\d.)/(\d.)/20(\d.) \(static\))", 4)
for $i = 0 to UBound($aString) - 1
    $match = $aString[$i]
    ConsoleWrite($match[0] & @CRLF)
    WinSetState($match[0], "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
Next

I hope it helps...

Try this.

; For testing have SciTE, AutoIt Help, and AU3Info windows running.
Local $aTitle[3] = ["[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.+scite.+)]", "[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.+help)]", "[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)(.+info)]"]
; or

#cs
Local $aTitle[3] = ["[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)LAN \d{2}-\d{2} \d{2}/\d{2}/\d{4} \(static\)]", _
        "[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)UPC \d{2}-\d{2} \d{2}/\d{2}/\d{4} \(static\)]", _
        "[REGEXPTITLE:(?i)ACD \d{2}-\d{2} \d{2}/\d{2}/\d{4} \(static\)]"]
#ce

For $i = 0 To UBound($aTitle) - 1
    If WinExists($aTitle[$i]) Then
        WinActivate($aTitle[$i])
        WinWaitActive($aTitle[$i], "", 4)
        If WinActive($aTitle[$i]) <> 0 Then WinSetState($aTitle[$i], "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    EndIf
Next
